AD&D Character Sheet Revisited

AD&D has been my recent old school obsession. I've realized that I keep coming back to AD&D. My old hardcovers have become recreational reading for me when I get a moment to relax. I recently started to read the pdf of the Osric 2nd edition rulebook, and I was heartened by how clear Osric is. It doesn't have all the rules I might like, but, for example, I can easily use the wilderness travel rules from the DMG if I like. The more I keep looking at the rules the more I like them. I'm thinking of developing a science fantasy AD&D/Osric campaign using some stuff from my First Edition Gammma World rulebook.

I posted a version of an AD&D character sheet a while back, but I've been tinkering with it. Its now four pages, and I'm pretty happy with it. Page three even has a space for followers and hirelings.

More visual inspiration!

The above image is from the videogame Darksiders. I'm not particularly interested in playing the game, but the artwork for the game is particularly evocative. This image makes me want to run a game set in the world of this picture (not the game's world but the world suggested by the picture).

Anybody else inspired to do campaigns based on pretty pictures?
